MOAB - It's time for the 45th annual Jeep Safari in Moab.

Tens of thousands of off-road maniacs descended on the area with their rigs this week for a nine-day festival that culminated in"Super Saturday."

It wouldn't be Jeep Safari without "Potato Salad," the famous hill where thousands gather to see who will be the next one to roll.

"When we first came over I just had a little stock truck, and then one thing led to another," said George Breakal, showing off his rig. "Lockers, the whole works. Good tires and everything."

Breakal gave KSL's Scott Haws a lift up "Potato Salad" in his suped-up '85 Toyota.

Like the past 13 years, Potato Salad was no match for George's truck.

Jeep Safari is a huge event that has every motel and campground within 50 miles of Moab booked solid year in and year out.
